:: What is jihad? ::
Thelonius Liddell, an American citizen, is a former intelligence agent who stands accused
of terrorism. In his memoir, he argues that he is held without charge in a
secret overseas prison.
A set of annotations to that memoir paints a much darker picture. Their author, a
brilliant but erratic psychologist, seeks immunity from prosecution for Liddell's murder.
The novel's two voices compete for primacy, weaving an intricate path through
Thelonius's nervous breakdown, his botched overseas mission, his broken marriage,
and his conversion to Islam.
JIHADI: A LOVE STORY features a diverse cast of characters in a complex,
multi-layered story that explores the borderlines between good and evil.
Who is the real terrorist? The morally lost CIA agent? His wife? The beautiful
young Muslim translator who comes to his aid? Or the trigger-happy Marine
with a vendetta?
